About Us

Custom Home Designs, LLC is a company specializing in designing and planning for the successful construction of new homes, lake homes, additions, and remodels.

The goal of every project encountered is to successfully provide the space and or needs within a plan that a homeowner desires, while keeping the entire project within the budget specified by the homeowner.

“Designing on Experience” Having personally experienced many years of hands-on construction enables the staff of Custom Home Designs to relate to the contractor and create a workable set of construction drawings. While working through various design questions and issues, the ability to utilize this hands-on experience is essential to a quality set of working drawings.

Past projects involve many different styles and locations for new homes located throughout Indiana, as well as many homes around the U.S. Lake homes have become a specialty due to the intricacies of the lots, planning requirements, and locations. Successful lake projects include houses on many of the different lakes located in Northern Indiana. Room additions and remodeling planning have also been a valuable service offered. Planning around existing homes can be a challenge to work within the constrictions of the lot, existing elevations, and floor layouts. Primary focus is given to integrating the new addition or remodel work within the existing house facade.
